I am so happy to be using this cute little girl! I colored her over a year ago right before I hurt my shoulder. Now that I have had surgery and my shoulder is starting to get back in the groove of things, TPS had the perfect challenge for me to use her in!
I also have always gotten the emails from the blog posts for their sketch challenges but I have never done one. This again just seemed meant to be! I am so happy right now! I have really missed making cards. The relaxation and just the joy of making them, really do a lot in someone’s life. Not just mine but I love to see the smiles on people’s faces when I give them a card.
The name of this sweet little stamp is Rhythm Everywhere by The Paper Shelter. The Paper Shelter is on their 313th challenge! That is amazing! I love their stamps as well. Not only do you get the stamp, but you get the stamp colored for you, or you can color it yourself… then on top of that you also get a digital patterned paper too!!! <insert gasping excited face here>
The Paper Shelter’s challenge theme is Music and Dance. So I found an old sentiment I had that was for a Halloween party. I thought it was cute that it was a Monster Bash and she was dancing. I originally had her in an oval cut out. But decided I wanted to just fussy cut her out, and put her on the middle of the Halloween paper.
The lay out is from Freshly Made Sketches. I love the lay out.. but I moved one part of it because I really love the little foiled bat paper. I didn’t want to cover that up. They are also on their 308th challenge!!
With so many challenge blogs going away these days I am just so excited to see some of my favorites sticking around for those of us that like to be inspired. I am really thankful for them.
For the blue background I went ahead and just took that opportunity to use some of my new Halloween ribbon I got from Michaels. It is a self adhesive kind of ribbon, which is new for me. I have never used that type of ribbon before.
I actually ended up cutting it way to short and had to cut it in half behind the main part of the card so I could get it to go all the way across and not waste any haha!
